Keevil Art Show: May 2019

Once again the Art Show was a huge success, with over £715 raised for the Tulip Fund in the name of the late Dr Neil Jones, for Dorothy House Hospice Care. “We were so pleased with the response” said Pat Tucker, “thank you everyone! The whole Art Group turned out to help, and there was a great friendly atmosphere all day. Thanks also to my husband, without whose DIY skills we could not have managed.”

Heale Gardens Outing 2018

We all enjoyed a day out to Heale Gardens near Salisbury recently, with a pleasant couple of hours spent in deep thought and concentration, and then a lovely lunch in their gardens. You may be able to see the fruits of our labours at the next Art Exibition! Photos: Pat Tucker

The Keevil Art Show, September 2017

A massive thank you to so many of our villagers, friends and relatives who took part by displaying their art work, helping with the displays, making cakes and acting as ‘bouncers’ on the door! We were a little apprehensive but nevertheless determined to create an atmosphere that all could enjoy – and we think it worked. John Duckworth’s family were very grateful for everyone’s efforts, and appreciate that the £565 raised will be paid into a fund, in his name, to assist with the maintenance of the organ in St. Leonard’s Church.

About the Art Group

The Art Group was originally started in March 2012 by Andrew Seymour. The intention was for like minded people to be together and enjoy exchanging ideas and experiences of various forms of art. In 2014 Andrew moved away and Pat Tucker volunteered to take over.

Pat hastens to add “that meant I open the door, put the tables up and made the coffee!

We are of varying abilities, and work in different mediums. However, four years on, we are a thriving group of art loving enthusiasts, with a full complement of attendees. We have a demonstrator about once a year; go on an outside expedition to enjoy a building, or a garden, and usually gather for a Christmas lunch.”

The group had very successful and well attended exhibitions in September 2017 and May 2019.

Anyone who may wish to join, or to enquire about anything, please contact
Pat Tucker on 01380 871601, trishtucker@btinternet.com. Sessions are the first and third Wednesday of the month, 10am-12.30pm.
The charge is £2 per session, and includes coffee and biscuits.
